The City Council run-off election for Districts 1,2,3, 5 and 9 is less than two weeks away, with early voting starting on Monday, May 24. Your Chamber wants to ensure that residents are aware of where candidates stand on key business issues. Earlier this week, your Chamber hosted City Council Candidate Forums for Districts 1, 3, and 9.

While the Chamber does not endorse political candidates, we do understand the integral role our elected leaders play in ensuring a San Antonio maintains strong business-friendly climate. The relationship between the business community and our City Council is essential for economic prosperity in San Antonio, and that is why we were pleased to host these Facebook Live City Council Candidate Forums.
2021 is a very critical time for San Antonio, as our business community continues its road to recovery and back to the strong economic powerhouse it was pre-pandemic. We believe it is vital that San Antonio elect Council Members who will ensure San Antonio has a successful recovery and maintains its business-friendly climate.
Tonight (5/21), we will host Rudy Lopez, candidate for City Council District 5 at 5:15 pm. To access the City Council Forum, just FOLLOW or LIKE our Chamber Facebook Page. You will receive a notification on Friday, May 21 when we go live.
